White back at Northants

Left-arm spinner Graeme White has returned to Northamptonshire from Nottinghamshire on a two-year contract.

Having had a loan spell at Wantage Road this season, the 26-year-old has made a permanent move back to the county he left ahead of the 2010 campaign.

Throughout his senior career White has mainly played limited-overs cricket and has impressive Twenty20 statistics of 38 wickets in 41 games at an average of 19.07.

White, who took a career-best 5-22 in the Friends Life t20 for Notts Outlaws versus Lancashire Lightning in July, said: “I've truly loved representing Nottinghamshire over the last few seasons and wish to thank Mick Newell, management and the team for helping to evolve my game during this period.

“It is such a fantastic team and club, which made it such a hard decision to make. But I feel the time is now right for a new challenge, so I'm delighted to be returning back to Northants CCC and excited by the opportunity to compete for a club whom I represented since their academy level.

“Northants have shown this summer that they possess a potent squad of cricketers, which I am thrilled to be joining and look forward to pursuing yet more silverware going into 2014."

Northants head coach David Ripley said: “It’s great to welcome Graeme back to the County Ground. He returns a better bowler than when he left and is hungry to push his career forward in all formats.

“He performed well while on loan last year and he slotted back into the changing room perfectly. I would like to thank Nottinghamshire for their help in allowing Graeme to leave, a very player centred decision.”

Notts director of cricket Newell said: "Graeme has been an excellent player for us in the shorter formats of the game. He has been excellent in white-ball cricket, and with this move will see more opportunities to play in the longer format.

"He has been a great representative of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, and he moves on with our best wishes."
